Mr. Wedlock's Dairy. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

[?] ; On Mr; A. Wedlock's Abbotsford dairy, a couple of miles out from Picton, is to be seen what is probably the best example of heavy feeding to be found in the drought-stricken areas. Mr. Wedlock learnt Ins dairying at Merrickville, and since coming here he has fed his cows on the lines of the suburban dairj men. Thfi result is that his whole herd of; 60 milkers are. now in splendid con dition, and his average yield is probably better than that of any other supplier to the Sydney marker.. But it is costing him Is. 6d. per h^ad daily to feed them, anJ his fodder bill for the milkers »and a few springers is now over £5 per day. The cows are stall-fed twice daily on a mixture of 4£ parts lucerne chaff, 6£ parts oaten and wheaten chaff, and one part each of maize meal and bran. After mixing this is soaked with boiling watpr and allowed to steam and soften for hours, the morning feed bring prepared over-night, and the after noon feed in the morning. The daily ration averages as nearly...

The Tariff. To the Editor of THE PICTON POST. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

The Tariff; To the Editor of The Picton Post. Sir,— In your issue of October 9, ' Squatter ' writes in an antagonistic vein concerniug Sir William Lyne and the wire-netting tariff, ainl, incidentally, the wire-netting indus try of Australia, whose ' advocacy ' (he says of Sir William Lyne) 'must be highly valued by the British capitalists owning that enterprise.' Now, , who gainB most by tJuit advocacy? Australia with the British owned factory in this country, or England with die firm ami factory both on its own soil ? We, at leasf, get. the wages paid to 400 hands. Apirt from that, Currutliers' catdi vpte assertion that the factory was ; owned in England was— well— just a catch-vote. The management have since risen np to state that Iho, industry is locally owned ; and the ' profits do not go to England. Also, Sir Williain Lyne's statement that the local industry has 'undertaken not to increase prices ' may appear 'di8;ngeni6us'to 'Squatter,'- but h.bio wa& uo guarantee tnat...

THE CODLIN MOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

THE CODLIN MOTH. Toe knowledge that spraying with arsenic solutions will reduce the injury done by codlln moths is ot little use un less the life history of the moth and worm is known (remarks the San Fran cisco 'Chronicle'). It commences to the spring from the larva or worm which has lain In the cocoon all winter. This worm pupates or goes into the chrysalis form when spring weather comes and in a few days comes out as a moth It then flies about during the day time, »nd lays its eggs on the apples Just out of bloom, and also on the leaves of the tree. The moth is active about four days; the eggs require about ten days to hatch and the worms live about 24 days berore they spin their cocoons. Now this will give an idea when to spray. As Professor Melander of the Washing ton Station saye:— 'The object or sifray- ; ing is to coat the f cod of the worm with ' .??.?last.'':-;, . He ftugBests that:*he beat way, J a few ^obooas to a «ason -i63r with; ft ' cloth cover, and watch1 when, the ...

TETHERING HOUSES AND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

TETHERING HORSES AND CATTLE. It is often desired to tether 'a horse, cow, or calf in the field. To keep them from winding the rope about the bar or Btake to which they are attached ia im portant. Two methods are shown in the accompanying illustrations. A long, etout Iron hook may be pressed down Into the turf, there being Just enough curve In the part of the ground to keep It from pulling out, but not too much to prevent the hook from being turned ab out in the soil, as shown In Figure 1. The hook must bo long onf ugh and stout enough so that It will not pull out through the turf. The device illustrated In Figure 2 needs little explanation. The wooden affair that slips down over the Iron bar, and that turns freely about It, must be of hardwood, and short en ough to stand the strain upon It. The pieces of plank may be bound with hoop iron around the edges Tor added strength. Even it the rope gets wound around this It will unwind when the ani mals pull upon it. , ?

SPRING FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

SPRING FEEDING. The busy season Is now approaching. Every hfve should be examined and its exact condition as to food, brood, and health of the colony ascertained. One should also ascertain whether or not the occupants are suffering from dysentery. The bees now require a great deal of rood, as the brood is, or should be, rap Idly Increasing. Money spent on feed ing now will be well laid out, for food will strengthen the colonies and render the bees ready for gathering the main ! honey chop, the season of which varies with the district A suitable food is made as follows:— White sugar, l 1b; water, 7 pints; salt, l ounce; vinegar, 1 tablespoonful. Some beekeepers add naphthol beta, a salicylic acid, or phe nol solution as a preventive, of foul brood, but, as the value of these substances Is' questionable, they may be omit ted. However, should they be desireS, use. as follows:— Dissolve, a small pack age of naphthol beta In 2 ounces of alco- ' hoi or methylated spirit and mix it with ab...

SEASONABLE APIARY HINTS. If there is ho water near the apiary a number of vessels full should be placed In the garden or field. To prevent the bees being drowned a -.number of stones should be placed in, the jars. Bees re quire large quantities of water whilst raising brood. . They may orten De seen on the mud on the sides of a pond In search, of water. ? ' To induce a rapid production of brood place the bottle of syrup over a different frame about every ninth day. Where the tees have sufficient honey for food the cappings of one frame should be bruised each ninth day, and the comb be placed In the centre of the frames con taining brood. In hives that have not been cleansed of dead bees and accumulated . rubbish the wax moth, finds an excellent place In .which to lay her eggs. .

ENGINE RUNS AJttOK. FRENCH DRIVER'S DRUNKEN PRANK. An engine-driver named Gatie was Tecently ordered to take an express en gine from Chaumont to Chalonssur Marne. At St. Dlzler, where he stopped, tbe ctatlontnaster saw he was drunk and told him to leave the engine, but Gatie refused, turned on steam, went I careering alone the line, and reached Chalons without meeting with any acci dent The Paris-Nancy express was In that station, and the officials were horrified to see an engine come dashing along, whistling wildly, and about to dash Into the standing train. A pointsman, with great presence of mind, switched the runaway engine on to another line, and as soon as the' first wheels had passed the points let go the lever. This threw the engine off tbe lines, and after pbyghing up the track for a ; hundred yards or so It came to a etana «U11..' ^en^^iBatie^eiuBed toJeaye; tprtruggle ^ththedi^ken driver, and all JtiB *ouia -do was to keep the Whistle 'going.— 'Dally News.'1 ; ''?

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

ASHES FOR PIGS. Professor Henry, in his 'Feeding Manual,' says that plgo ln^a state of nature, rooting for food get what they need, but when confined In pens or on floors the conditions are unnatural. Mineral elements in the food must be supplied. It is thought, also, that ! ashes, charcoal, etc., act as vermifuge and preventives of disease. Intestinal worms may produce the craving for something that will destroy them. Soft ' coal is not the best ashes, and char coal, with salt, seem to produce the best results. Bone meal Is also excellent. Ashes are particularly valuable when feeding grain. A mixture of -charcoal and ashes, with a quart of salt to the bushel, is good. Keep.lt where the pigs have free access. They will not eat too much. This Ik said to prevent sows from eating their pigs. If bone meal Is added It will EtIU he better.

A ROYAL BOWLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 23 October 1907

A ROYAI. BOWLER. A very appropriate feature of the pageant at Carisbrooke Castle will be the representation of Charles L playing his favorite game of bowls. Many stones are -told of the Ill-fated King's passion for this fascinating game, which proved such a solace In his days of captivity. At a place called CoUln'B End, among tbe hills of Oxfordshire, there Is, or was quite recently, a small rustic mn to which Charles used to repair when a prisoner at Cayersbam; and, as the Inn sign ? board proclaims, ''His favorite game the royal martyr played. . . . Drank from the bowl, and bowled for what he drank.' When his Majesty, ?too, was In durance at HoJm'by he used frequently to ride over to Aithorpe or to lord Vaux's house, Harrowden, and for a few happy hours forget his troubles on the bowlingrgreen. It was while play ing on the green at Althorpe that Cornet Joyce arrived at Holmby House to con duct the royal prisoner to Hampton Court.

THE VTNROMANTIC CR13SXNAX.
